'There's a barrel-organ carolling across a golden street 

In the city as the sun sinks low; 
And the music's not immortal; but the world has made it sweet 

And fulfilled it with the sunset glow; 

"And all around the organ there's a sea without a shore 

Of human joys and wonders and regrets; 
To remember and to recompense the music ever more 
N^ For what the cold machinery forgets . . . 

"Yes, as the music changes 

Like a prismatic glass, 
It takes the light and ranges 

Through all the moods that pass. 
Dissects the common carnival 

Of passions and regrets, 
And gives the world a glimpse of all 

The colors it forgets."

The age in which we live is an age of corporate effort. It is not a new 
phenomenon; it was characteristic of the Middle Ages. The gildes, the uni- 
versities, the cathedrals, political theories and religious doctrines were 
expressions of it. The critical spirit and the joy of life introduced by the 
Renaissance substituted for corporate effort a rugged individualism, the con- 
quest of a new world nurtured this individualism and the philosophy of the 
eighteenth century consecrated it. 

With the invention and introduction of machinery individualism began 
to decline. More and more corporate organization took possession of economic 
activity; more and more the theory of a mechanized society has come to 
prevail. The individual apart from an organized group counts for little. Hence 
the multiplication of clubs and societies and propaganda bodies of all sorts. 
Mass power has been increased but the joy of individual effort has been 
reduced. The voice that cries in the wilderness cannot make itself heard 
against the voice that speaks in the microphone. 

The finest fruit of your education will be perhaps the ability on occasion 
to detach yourselves spiritually and intellectually from the mass conscious- 
ness; the ability to look at things through your own eyes and your own 
experiences; the freedom to criticize and reject for your own conduct those 
tendencies in society which do not command your approval; the power to 
tolerate and attribute worthy motives to those with whom you do riot agree. 
A generous conformity to the prevailing modes of living dees not involve a 
slavish acceptance of all the ideas and theories which lie back of them.

There are many things for which '30 can be proud, but the most valued possession is 
our Kay. Since Freshman year she has served her class most efficiently and has now 
attained the highest goal that Simmons offers. She is respected and admired not only by 
her classmates, but by the student body as a whole. She maintains her dignity in a gra- 
cious and charming manner; and what jollier girl could you find than Kay, sitting cross- 
legged on the floor at night, feasting on bread and jelly, and bubbling over with laughtet 
and fun?

Dependable in all that she undertakes — whether it be work or play — and with a friendly 
spirit toward all. Is it any wonder that we like Ruth? To judge from the high standard

finds outside affairs equally fascinating. Qualities such as these will lead to success in 
the library field, we know.

Four long years of catching trains and trollies early or late have not daunted her fine

be there, we know-. Easy going and free from worry, but quiet, she will always make and 
keep her friends. Her favorite haunt is third floor of College where she may be sewing, 
cooking, or drawing, — not to mention talking. We hope that success will be with her 
in the long-awaited position in New York.

We all admire her lovely blond hair and the depth of her blue eyes, but fortunate indeed

The editorial columns of the News have been an unfailing proof of Frances' literary

several men going at once, stay at the top in all her library classes, and has had plenty of 
time for frequent visits to Walpole. Sparkling brown eyes and a merry laugh contradict 
the cynical outlook she has on things in general. We wish her every success in her chosen 
filed and all through life.

having your picture taken. All this practice is going to make her just that much more 
valuable in the future as a secretary to some manufacturer.

It is always easy to find Brownie in a crowd — her golden hair serves as a mark of dis-

someone borrows her best hat.

sincerity and friendliness, and a desire to be helpful. It is greatly due to Joan that Glee

Not only is she an artist but a cook as well. The kindest heart in the world beats under 
those slim shoulders so far from the ground. And in her big brown eyes there gleams a 
spirit of mischief that will never die. Genius and charm, say we, describe her best.

Dorothy Hager ' ' Dot ' ' 

If you want a longitudinal view of four years of college life or a cross section view of 
that life in any of its details — all seen under "high power" — ask Dot. Speaking histologi- 
cally, it's lots of fun to cut sections; speaking chemically, if you are testing an unknown, 
it's always well to try the flame test. You never can tell but what you might find strontium.

Sincere to her friends, her obligations and herself, Marion with her soft, slow voice and 
quiet manner has won her way into our hearts. No task was ever so difficult that she 
would leave it in an unfinished or an unsatisfactory condition. She has never been too 
tired to listen to our troubles or to share in our fun, and how she loves to laugh! Once 
having got her started, no power on earth can stop her.

Kayaaaa, accent on the A's! And our Kathleen is one of the few people who seems to

gifts from the gods. Another is the ability to talk anywhere, anytime — including Biology 
G — and yet get out of the course the truly important facts. Ask her about filter paper, or 
how to keep in step going down the corridor, or if she likes to talk, or how "Dear Diary" 
is. There is no doubt about it; she always has an answer ready. We give her an A, too.

Her ambition is to be a social service worker and with the ability and the personality 
that are hers we have no doubt of her success. But, somehow, in spite of all this, we think 
social work will be secondary in her interests. We know too well how her fair loveliness 
charms and delights all who come in contact with her — and there is one especially, in the 
heart of whom she holds full sway.

The class of 1930 has much to be proud of, and in Shirl, our pride is certainly justified. 
As Chairman of Judicial Board she has faithfully fulfilled one of the highest honors

her friendly smile and her unselfishness, her absolute sincerity, and her loyalty to all college

us. We find her combination of brains and beauty very appealing and her vivacity, her 
cleverness, and her smile very attractive. She is a girl with firm opinions of her own, and 
she is not afraid to express them. Her enthusiasm and ability should go a long way toward 
the realizition of her ambitions.

A light rippling laugh — and there is Ros with her sparkling eyes and her curly hair. 
She is always happy and knows just what to say to brighten the world for every one else. 
Calmly accepting any task assigned to her, she has gone through college without a single 
worry and has made a host of friends. "You just can't help lovin' that girl."

Ruth Anna Magai 
Simmons long ago exploded the old time theory that science could only be dealt with

in the right proportions a deep interest in science, a love for athletics and the ability to 
speak German fluently with the qualities of friendship and loyalty. We'll meet you in

She seems destined to be the ideal children's librarian by her charming manner and her

No, it isn't a squirrel we hear chattering! It is only Marion, the creator of our squirrel

Esther Pauline Spinney "Poll" 

"My kingdom for some ink," cries Esther in despair. Accuracy with dots, dashes, and 
finals does not come with a dty pen. In everything that she does, there is this same back- 
ground of efficiency and thoughtful ness. "Thumbs down!" to the boring incidents, Esther, 
and good luck in all you do.

Mary Henry Stites 
Successful in an academic way and in the art of making friends — Mary Henry has taught

personality she would be a charming hostess in one of the colonial homes of the south.

Those of us who have really come to know Bea are glad to count her as a friend.

Speaking of bridge prizes — ask Skinnv what to buy; speaking of A's — ask Skinny how to

Mary Frances Sullivan 
Here's to our Mary — the girl of many surprises. She always seems to have more work to 
do than anyone else, yet she always finds time for a little walk down to the Ritz; there 
must be more than twenty-four hours to her day. We understand that she is an authority on 
many things — including houseparties — and we find her views particularly inte.esting on 
this point. Everything considered, we come to an unanimous decision — Resolved: She's 
a good sport.

Henrietta Arline Tarlson "Sunny" 

Whoever gave Sunny her nickname certainly picked a good one, for she lives up to its 
deepest meaning every minute of the day. No one ever had to wait for Sunny, for she is 
here, there, and everywhere all at the same time. She's little and she's cute; and how pop-

Ruth Madeline Taylor 
Ruth came to us in our Junior year from the University of Maine. We have sometimes 
wondered how she could bear to leave a co-educational institution but we have never been 
sorry she made the ch. nge. Red hair, blue eyes — or are they green? and lots of pep — that's 
Ruthie. Going to become a Baptist?

As soon as you meet Ruth you are assured of her sunny disposition. No matter where she

ner is sure to help her when she goes out into the cold, cold world.

After experimenting in Chemistry for three years, "Jiggers" started a new experiment, 
the biggest one of life, that of "getting married". We hope it will be the happiest and most 
successful experiment "Jiggers" has ever carried out. How she finds time to come to college 
and take care of the husband and their cunning apartment is almost beyond comprehension. 
Still we're mighty glad "Jiggers" does find time for everything as we want very much to 
keep her with us.

Was there ever a more conscientious student in Sec. than Alma? Or one who was better

hardly any activity at college that she does not enter into with much enthusiasm and 
interest. The class admires her and considers her an example of the type we think of when

Sibyl Eleanor Warren "Sib" 

"If you want a thing done well, do it yourself" has followed us all the days of our school 
career, but we prefer to let Sibyl do it and be absolutely sure. Why, we can remember that 
even back in the benighted freshman days she was a person to be iooked upon with awe — 
she got A's in Physics. Sib is so quiet that she almost succeeded in hiding the fact that not 
only is she one of 1930's best sports but also that for keen, dry humor she can't be beat.

The Tri^e Toenij 1930 


Phyllis Abell, '30 

There was no need to tell me this •was Beauty — 

To analyze and theorize, 

And try to make my untrained intellect 

Follow your intricate tracings 

Of pattern and conscious rhythm. 

"This line — see how it complements 

And brings out the line of the shoulder; 

The curve of the tree-stump here — " 

But I was off to infinity; 

I had caught the spirit, without the rules. 

Your green-bronze Pan 

Gave never a thought to his patterns; 

See — he sits half-twisted there on the stump, 

His head turned quizzically this way, 

A faint ironic smile quirking his clean-cut lips, 

As if to say to man — 

"Well, I was your first god — 

And what of it? 

Gods you have had of every kind 

Since me. And philosophers and teachers 

And religion, and gods and more gods. 

And are you better off now 

Than I here, my pipe clutched to me, 

With my goat-hoofs that dance 

To my own sweet, wild music? 

With my woods and my hamadryads? 

Now you try to put me in a pattern, 

To make me into rules, 

Together with your religion and art. 

I was your first god. 

You have had many gods — 

And what of it? 

Have you found a better god than I?"

To Student Government we owe a sense of responsibility and a spirit of cooperation, 
since it is the only organization of which every student is a member. 

Student Government, though formal in sound, is not in reality; for it has far greater 
possibilities than those concerned with rules and regulations. It is a stepping stone 
for the future; it gives us a conception of self government and prepares us to take part 
in the political affairs of the country; and it provides a penetration into that spiritual 
realm where we find the force which makes us want "to live up to the finest, the 
truest, and the best there is." 

Each step is a step forward in Student Government, and is not only advantageous 
to the individual, but to the college in creating a spirit of loyalty and love. It is an 
organization for which we are proud to be striving.

TDormitory Council 


Doris Franklin 
Frances Ford-Smith 

Dormitory Council consists of the chairman who is vice-president of Student Gov- 
ernment, a house chairman from every college house and the house seniors. The 
council meets bi-monthly to discuss anything connected with the dormitories and to 
carry on routine affairs. Recommendations from council go to Student Government 
Council and Conference Committee for final report.

The committee, composed of four faculty members and three students, is the last 
step through which recommendations from Student Government Council, Dormitory 
Council and Judicial Board must pass before they go into effect. 

This is an important committee, since it is the only one where members of the 
faculty and student body can consider together problems affecting the students and 
the college. The opinions of the faculty are of great value to the students in making 
their decisions. Student Government appreciates the cooperation of the faculty mem- 
bers in giving so much of their time and service.

Judicial '"Board 

Chairman Shirley Hathaway 

Secretary Gretchen Lorenz 

Judicial Board, as its name implies, is the judiciary branch of Student Government. 
This body deals with cases in which an academic or dormitory rule has been broken, 
passing its recommendations to the Faculty Disciplinary Committee if the case is 
academic, or to the Conference Committee if the case is a dormitory one. They in 
turn act on the recommendation of Judicial Board when the case is brought up and 
the girl is given a chance to defend herself. 

The Board consists of nine members: the four class presidents, a Sophomore and a 
Junior Representative of Student Government Council (elected by the Council) and 
the chairman, a Senior elected by the student body. The President and Vice-president 
of Student Government are ex-officio members. 

Judicial Board does not exist solely for the purpose of enforcing rules; it aims also 
to enlarge our ideas of responsibility so that we may be more worthy of the privilege 
of self-government.

The Academy is one part of our college life that is far removed from our technical 
existence, and its chief aim is to foster a true spirit of culture apart from actual 
utilitarian ends. Academy would like to see here at Simmons a real harmony of art 
and industry that would produce a type of educated woman of real service to the com- 
munity. To bring about this perfection of balance is the goal toward which Academy 
is constantly striving. The needs of a bread and butter existence furnish an ever 
present stimulus for the practical element. We are of the opinion that "man shall not 
live by bread alone." 

A good many of our meetings have been addressed by faculty members, who have 
many interesting things to say outside their respective classrooms. One meeting a 
term is open to the college, and parents and friends are cordially welcomed. The social 
element was encouraged by the Academy dinner, a small bridge, and a theatre party. 

For the past few years Academy has been dreaming about affiliation with * u K, 
which seems at present a faraway prospect owing to the technical nature of our college 
curriculum; but we are not without hope for future generations of Academicians. As 
ideas of college standards are constantly changing and broadening, ideals of scholastic 
standards may enlarge their scope to become more inclusive and to fit the altered 
programs. Latin is no longer the only life-giving essential of culture, and so the story 
goes in the academic world as in our personal, transitory life. Out of this change may 
evolve Academy's place in the sunlight of scholastic achievement.

Ellen Tfychards Club 

President . Helen Hawes

The Ellen Richards Club was founded in 192.0 to promote interest in Science and 
good fellowship among the students of the School of General Science. The constitu- 
tion has been modified this year in such a way as to admit students at the end of their 
sophomore year instead of at the beginning of their junior year. Membership has also 
been extended to seniors in the School of Household Economics who have taken 
certain courses in the School of General Science. 

Ellen H. Richards was one of the earliest women to study problems in sanitation 
and dietetics. The club is attempting to carry on her ideals and her spirit by bringing 
people together so that they may discuss things of current scientific interest. Several 
prominent speakers have been generous in giving us of their time. The club has co- 
operated with the Boston Tuberculosis Association and the American Red Cross in 
their campaigns for funds. 

Among the social activities we have engaged in have been the initiation of new 
members, the picnic at Hammond's Pond, the Birthday Party, and a meeting at 
which several graduate members told of their work. We have had a very happy and 
successful year; and in turning the work over to the Juniors and the Sophomores, we 
hope that thev will have as much pleasure in their club relationships as we have had.

Unity Club aims to bring together the girls of Simmons who have liberal religious 
views in order that they may become better acquainted through discussion and 
through social gatherings. Whenever the members wish, a speaker is asked to talk 
upon some subject of common interest. This year we have had several very enjoyable 
teas; and at our regular meetings we had two exceptionally interesting speakers.

The purpose of Christian Science Organization is to offer to those so desiring it an 
opportunity to learn about Christian Science. It has brought to its members this year 
a greater realization of friendship and cooperation, and an increased love of friend- 
ship for all the students. 

Testimonial meetings are held on each Monday of the college year to which all 
students and faculty are welcome. One lecture on Christian Science is given each year 
by some member of the Board of Lectureship of The Mother Church, The First Church 
of Christ, Scientist, in Boston.

The Newman Club, named for the revered Cardinal, is the organization which 
brings together all Catholic students at Simmons and offers them religious, educa- 
tional, and social opportunities. The Club is a member of the National Federation 
of College Catholic Clubs, and its members have been active this year in the provin- 
cial work of this organization. 

The open meetings, the teas, and the formal dance of Newman Club are affairs to 
which the entire student body may look forward and enjoy. 

The Newman Club of Simmons has always been successful, and we hope it always 
will be, in its attempts to maintain the high ideals of its patron, Cardinal Newman.

The Menorah at Simmons is affiliated with the Intercollegiate Menorah Association 
and the Boston Menorah Council. It is open to all students and is organized for the 
study and open-minded discussions of Jewish culture, ideals, and thought, because we 
believe that through such free and open-minded study, students can arrive at intelli- 
gent opinions and convictions regarding Jewish problems. 

Through the studv circles and lectures it has stimulated a deeper and keener interest 
in things Jewish. 

The Menorah Society also aims to develop closer friendship and loyalty among its 
members, and has sponsored many activities of a more purely social nature.

During the past three years, the musical activities of the college have presented 
several successful innovations in college life, but this year has been more progressive 
than ever. There is an embryo string orchestra, now under the direction of Mr. 
McCloskey; and a jazz orchestra which appeared publicly at Dorm Government Party 
and has played at many other college functions. The Symphony Hall venture was so 
successful last year that it was repeated this year in cooperation with Dartmouth 
College Glee Club. We are all looking forward to singing again this year at Simmons 
night at Pops. Lastly, a record of two numbers by the Glee Club was made, which 
will preserve for posterity a record of our progress.

The Simmons Home Economics Club aims to acquaint the undergraduates with the 
business world and the various vocations open in the home economics field. This is 
accomplished throughout the year by having speakers at the meetings who relate their 
varied and interesting experiences. Also, the club is affiliated with the Massachusetts, 
New England, and American Home Economics Associations; and each year it sends a 
member of the Junior class to the annual National Home Economics Convention. 
This year the convention is to be held in Denver, Colorado. 

Juniors and Seniors in the School of Household Economics automatically become 
members of the club. The club is unique in that there are no dues; money is raised by 
food sales in the dormitories and at Hall Table, and by a formal dance.

The Debating Society, started last year, has grown and advanced admirably. Three 
formal debates upon subjects of school and current interest were held, and bi-weekly 
informal debates continued throughout the year. An optimistic view for the future 
of the club is held by all its members; for they keenly appreciate the value of debating 
as a form of training and of entertainment. 



Chairman. Clara M. McDonald 

Today we live in a world, not in a local community or even in a nation. We should 
be eager to know what is going on beyond our immediate vision. In our busy social 
life that is the function of Student Forum. 

Dr. Yarrell keeps us in touch with the world through his current events group. 
We are also indebted to him for many interesting pictures and the accounts of the trip 
abroad that he took last winter. 

Mr. and Mrs. Rankin have both helped to make India a very real place to us, 
instead of a mysterious land half way around the globe. 

The better we understand the other countries of the world, their people and their 
problems, the nearer we come to a realization of the great problems facing all man- 
kind; and perhaps out of our deeper knowledge shall come truer wisdom.

The Simmons Young Women's Christian Association sets for its goal a "full, 
creative life" for all students of the college. With access to the hospitable rooms of 
the Metropolitan Student Headquarters we have been able to meet each Friday after- 
noon at tea before a blazing birchwood fire among pleasant surroundings and friendly 
associations. During Lent our Simmons day became intercollegiate and several 
speakers of note came to us, bringing inspiration and a desire for service. 

Other notable events of the year were the traditional party for the Freshmen, their 
first week-end in the dorms; a houseparty during the fall when cider, hot popcorn 
and the bright foliage were extremely popular; participation in intercollegiate con- 
ferences at Cedar Hill and at Poland Springs; and Cabinet dinners at Mrs. Johnston's 
and Mrs. Jack's. 

Metropolitan Headquarters and the secretaries, Miss Dinsdale and Mary Reynolds 
Palmer have been particularly helpful and cordial. Vesper services, suppers, swim- 
ming, bowling privileges, breakfast table discussions, all show the extent of their 
willing spirit of cooperation and encouragement — to say nothing of the many emer- 
gencies when they gallantly came to our rescue. 

Discussion groups with various themes of interest, such as industry, inter-race 
problems and religion have proved their worth and now form a regular part of our 
program with the help of competent leaders. Several social service projects were 
successful, particularly volunteer settlement service and visits to Welcome House. 

All told, our year has not been fruitless, and we are looking forward to another year 
full of promise.

This year has been a very successful one for Dramatics Association in every way. 
Perhaps the biggest gain over other years has been in membership; for there are 
almost fifty more girls belonging this year than there have been for the past four 

In December a large audience was delighted with the production of "The Goose 
Hangs High". This was acted by the members of the three upper classes; and in addi- 
tion to our old stand-bys, there were a few new actors. The play was one that appealed 
to the audience — particularly at that time of year; the atmosphere of college added a 
new note of interest; and the acting was all that could be asked for. In February came 
the Competitive Plays, all of interest and all well acted. The prize went to the Class 
of 193 1 ; and the individual prize for the best acting was awarded to Ruth Bradley. 
The Competitive Plays are for the members of the three lower classes. The Seniors are 
saving their talent for the Senior Play which will come at Commencement time.

During the year of 192.9-1930 the News has followed a three-fold policy. It has 
aimed, first of all, to keep in touch with and report the activities of the many different 
organizations at Simmons. By having every school, as well as many of the clubs, 
represented on the Staff, it has formed a sort of reportorial network touching both 
undergraduate and graduate activities. 

The second part of the policy has been to have the thought of the college on 
matters of both local and general interest freely expressed through the Editorial 
and Feature pages. 

The third point has been to broaden the scope of the Neivs so as to include digests 
of events of world importance, as well as activities and happenings of especial interest 
in and about Boston. In this way an attempt has been made to have the News not 
merely a breezy little weekly, but a worth-while part of college life. 

During the year the paper has been increased from a fairly large four-page sheet to a 
slightly smaller eight-page paper. The Staff feel that thev have had splendid coopera- 
tion from both students and faculty in helping the News to "grow up."

The Simmons College Review, because of its compound nature, should be of interest to 
us all. It serves a twofold purpose — that of reporting corporation, college and alum- 
nae news, — and that of publishing the literary efforts of faculty, students and gradu- 
ates. This year the Revieiv has again sponsored a poetry contest, with its usual success 
and some very delightful results. Through the efforts of the Staff the Review unites us 
all in one common interest — Simmons College and all that pertains to it. It is pub- 
lished six times a year and is sent to all alumnae as well as to all undergraduates.

The Mic Show was written and produced by Emily Newlin and Marion Zerbe. 



Well, now we've gone and done it; but "if anyone had told us four years ago, that 
when we came to Simmons College" we'd undertake a job like this, we would have 
laughed. The Mic Board of 1918 decided to retire to the Charles River Basin after 
their work was over. We, too, are about to leave public life; but worn out with our 
efforts, we shall only cross the Fenway to drown our weariness in the depths of 
Muddy River. There you may search for us — in the great, grey, greasy stream. 

The following list should show in part why we are leaving: — 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

I'll get those write-ups in to-morrow surely. 

Is it too late to sign up for a "Mic"? 

My proofs were awful, simply awful — what shall I do? 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

May I add this to my list of activities? 

When will "Mic" be out? 

O, my pictures were terrible; I'm so disgusted. 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

You're the Editor of "Mic", aren't you? What fun it must be . . . 

Did you make any money on the dance? 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

What does the Business Manager have to do? 

Could I possibly add this to my list of activities? 

Can I sign up for a "Mic" now — or is it too late? 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

Why does "Mic" cost so much? 

It must be lots of fun to go after ads. Is it? 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

I forgot today was pay day. What ever shall I do? 

How is "Mic" coming along? 

How is "Mic" coming along? 


Here it is; you can judge for yourselves, — while we make our exit as gracefully as

This year the Press Board is an active and energetic organization. Better facilities 
for running the Board have been provided by the Editors' Room in the New Wing, 
with its blackboard, telephone and typewriter. 

The Press Board Bulletin Board is an interesting spot in the college and every one 
is urged to notice the clippings and pictures posted there from time to time. What 
the Board most needs is the cooperation of the entire college, both in notifying the 
reporters of news and in being willing to pose for pictures.

Again the Simmons College Athletic Association is able to report a very successful 
year. Even the lack of the hockey field could not discourage us. We substituted for the 
usual fall sport outdoor basketball, and with excellent results. Many of our former 
hockey stars came out for practice; and we hope they did not regret too deeply the 
necessary change in schedule. We extend our sympathy to the Seniors; for they had 
to sacrifice their last chance to make the hockey squad, but the rest of us can look for- 
ward to next year and hope that the grass will grow. Outdoor basketball was so suc- 
cessful that we hope it may not be given up. Our indoor basketball season ended with 
the Seniors in possession of the cup. Leslie Wetterlow was voted to be the best indi- 
vidual basketball player both indoors and out. Life Saving this year was given on 
Thursday afternoons at the Y.W.C.A. pool. This meant that freshmen were allowed 
to attend the lessons. Archery, riding, fencing, golf, and tennis have been popular; 
and under the supervision of Miss Diall and Miss Leach and the managers, these sports 
were well organized and well attended. Track, as usual, ended with Track Day and 
all its glory. 

Certainly, The Simmons College Athletic Association offers a wide enough variety 
of sports for each girl to find somewhere one in which she can participate and through 
which she can seek recreation, at the same time making many friends. 

The managers of sports this year have been:

Freshman Frolic 


After suffering under the burden of all our new won dignity for most of freshman 
year — what a relief — to have a freshman frolic. On the afternoon of Track Day, a 
glorious sunny day in May, we met in the back yard of college, and for the whole 
afternoon behaved as suited our tender years. "London Bridge is Falling Down" and 
"The Farmer's in the Dell", "Ring Around a Rosy" and "Three Deep" were played. 
"Drop the Handkerchief", "Leap Frog" and "Follow the Leader". Some of us were 
very, very young — still in baby clothes; others were older and had on our best 
rompers. A few of us were quite grown-up — eight or nine years old, I guess — with hair 
ribbons and curls or in our best Sunday suits. Someone let in a few awfully dirty 
newspaper boys, and we were afraid they would be rough; but they weren't. We had 
a wonderful parade and gave prizes to "Bunny" Levin who had on a pair of blue 
checked overalls, and to "Bobby" Beers, one of the Park Street newsboys. Then we 
had an entertainment in Room 116. It seemed rather like desecration to romp and play 
in that room where we had listened so politely to Biology G and Housebuilding all 
year and where the Seniors came for Soc. and Gov't. It was an awfully clever stunt, 
all about a dance in a lunatic asylum. Peg Fernald was in it and Mary Wright, 
Eleanor Bodwell and Doris Bartlett. After the entertainment we had the "party" — 
hot dogs and ice-cream cones and lots of lolly-pops. Kay Adams was responsible for 
the frolic, and we wished we could stay forever. We went home that night rather 
tired and put away our "childish things" with a sigh — maybe it was because we 
were weary after a long day out of doors; probably we had all eaten too much; and 
maybe perhaps we were just a little bit sorry for ourselves, thinking that our freshman 
days, those long, light-hearted days of carefree fun, were so nearly over. 


Track T)ay 


Do you remember the month of May when we were freshmen? Every day was rainy, 
but one — and that was Track Day. Early morning showers had washed the dandelions 
in the back yard and they shone brighter than ever when we came out to do our 
stunts. We showed the upperclassmen and every one else how to Wring the Dish Rag, 
how to impersonate a Jack in the Box, a Walking Chair, a Russian Bear, and an 
Opening Rose. Then we made some quite lovely pyramids and did some exercises that 
were very unusual. We won the Archery cup and the organized sports cup, too; 
altogether we were quite the star performers. 

Sophomore year came, and before we knew it, here was spring and Track Day again. 
This year we won the organized sports cup again and also the song competition. 
Sally Bowditch had the second best individual score and Doris Franklin won the 
individual archery cup. Emily Newlin wrote the words to our song; Lillian Goldstein 
wrote the music. 

'Rally now with praises ringing; 

For the song we sing today 
Extols the strength of Simmons 

Where the blue and the gold holds sway 
Up and down the field it echoes; 

Can't you hear the voices clear? 
When day is done, our goal is won, 

A grand old year. 

Rally now with colors flying 

In this merry month of May; 
All honor to John Simmons 

And his school on the dear Fenway. 
We will keep the plan he started 

And make all his dreams come true. 
Let us raise on high to greet the sky 

Our Gold and Blue." 

i 9 z 9 
Junior year, and a big day this time — bigger than ever before. We didn't win any- 
thing special, but we came in second for the organized sports cup; and we had an 
awfully good time just doing things. After the events of the morning we had the 
S. A. A. picnic — sandwiches and eggs, lemons and peppermint sticks, and potato 
chips. And in the afternoon we went to Wellesley for "Play Day". This was an 
entirely new experience, and one that we enjoyed very much. We made some new 
friends, and saw some old ones, and altogether had a jolly good time, playing games, 
singing songs, and looking the place over. 


Sophomore Luncheon 

A Saturday in February — the Refectory a dream of red carnations and gray squirrels, 
ferns and much excitement — the thrill of finding our rings hidden beneath the green- 
ery at the end of long white ribbons — delicious food, and the climax of it all, our icy 
mascots seated on a slab of maple walnut cream that melted in your mouth. Charming 
waitresses — our faculty members and Miss Mesick — the fun of singing to them all and 
to the others who made the luncheon so successful. The delightful entertainment that 
followed the meal — Emily Newlin's poems, Mary Wright's recitations, and the clever 
cartoons of Mr. Allan Halliday — all just another proof of Laura's ability. And 
throughout the luncheon a new feeling — as if the college were something different, 
something finer and more worth while than we had dreamed it to be — an idea that 
now we were really a part of Simmons — a deeper love for its traditions — and a firm 
determination to uphold its ideals as long as we should wear our college rings. 


Sophomore JMay T>ay 

It was a dull morning — a dull, grey, cheerless morning — that we dragged ourselves 
out of the depths of sleep to make merry on the lawn. The Seniors found bouquets of 
flowers at their doors heralding Spring, but outside the air was damp and cold. We 
huddled together for warmth, but we soon forgot the weather in admiration of the 
skill and talent displayed by our fellow classmates. For our benefit and that of the 
Seniors they staged a modernized version of "Pyramus and Thisbe". It was very 
cleverly written and equally well performed. So was the dance that Bunny Burns and 
Nancy Schofield did to Mendelssohn's "Spring Song". Maxine La Bounty made a 
very lovely queen, and there never was a finer king than our Kay — or such a group 
of royal attendants. And we are sure there never was such strawberry shortcake, cake 
hidden under berries and smothered by cream. It made up for the dull, damp weather; 
it made up for our lack of sleep; and it made up for the spring that seemed so late in 
coming. We carried the memory of it all with us through the day, as we went to a 
long round of classes. It may have been the white dresses we wore that hastened warm 
weather along; it may have been the half pagan entertainment on the lawn; it may 
have been merely the psychology of it all; but somehow or other after that early 
morning's celebration, Spring came more quickly. Perhaps she felt she had to — so 
much had been done in her honor. 



Freshmen-Junior Ticnic 

— "Faithful and true 
We'll be to you; 
Forever more we'll be 
Just pals — good old pals." — 

Picnic-ing never loses its thrill for those who love to cut loose from the usual 
forms of recreation and just have a good time, with old clothes on, and plenty of 
food, fine weather and all outdoors. And Nantasket is a perfect place for picnics — 
especially in May — The beach is so wide; the sand is so smooth; the ride is just long 
enough; the water is just cold enough; the sun just bright enough; there is no crowd; 
and there is the "Nancy" to climb over and explore. Something there is about it all 
that seems to strengthen the bond of friendship between the sister classes, making us 
even greater "pals" than before. 

We have been to Nantasket twice now. Long ago we took our Junior sisters on a 
Saturday in early May (that is, we meant to take them; but some of them missed the 
boat, and had to come down in Polly Emery's car). The weather was showery, but 
it failed to dampen our high spirits. After a bountiful lunch on the sand, we climbed 
all over the "Nancy", and almost left Skoo up in the rigging. We brought home from 
the picnic many souvenirs of a good time — sunburn and lame muscles and some 
pictures cf Shirley Hathaway behind the wheel of the boat. 

Then we went again last year as Juniors and had another glorious day. No rain this 
time; and the day was warmer than before. Swimming was more fun, and we found 
lots of other things to do, too. — Ask Bo about the Marathon race on the beach down 
to the "Nancy" — and about some of the pictures that were taken that day. — Then 
we remembered the amusements and there was a last minute call for food. We found 
there was still a thrill in a merry-go-round, and more than one in some other things. 
Finally the whistle blew and the boat left, bringing home some rather tired girls, 
who were, nevertheless, very happy, and not too tired to dance to the music (?) all 
the way to Boston. 


Weddings of 


From the local paper for November 11, 192.6, we quote the following: — 

"At ten o'clock Saturday morning, November 6, Miss 193.0 (Julia Nichols) became 
the bride of Mr. 1918 (Mr. H. Burr), before a large gathering of friends. At the north 
end of the hall an altar was arranged, decorated with candles, green boughs and yel- 
low and white chrysanthemums. The wedding march was played by an orchestra 
under the leadership of the celebrated Miss Lois Piper, and the "Pal Song" was sung 
by the Lawrence-Elm duet. The bride was charmingly attired in white crepe de chine, 
and carried a huge bouquet of white carnations — The Rev. V. Britting performed the 
ceremony. The bridegroom's family, Mr. and Mrs. Ringwood-Osmers and their 
daughter and two sons, and the bride's family, Mr. and Mrs. Ines-May with their 
son and daughter, were in town for the event, as was the groom's aunt, Miss Bennett. 
Most notable among the guests, however, were the members of the royal family, their 
two guards, and the President of the United Dorms, who made a special effort to at- 
tend the nuptials. — At the reception which followed the ceremony, — the wedding 
cake was cut by the bride and shared by the entire bridal party. The couple slipped 
away during the dancing, but not before they had been wished all sorts of good 
wishes for their future happiness by those present." 

And from the society column of the same paper for November 8, 192.8, we cut this 

"Last Saturday morning at ten o'clock, Miss 1932. (Gretchen Lorenz) became the 
bride of Mr. 1930 (B. Ives). The Freshman-Junior Wedding was a fashionable event 
this season. Among those present were Col. Lindbergh and his mother, Will Rogers, 
and Harold Lloyd. The bride, who carried a lovely bouquet of white roses, was beau- 
tiful in her white satin dress, trimmed with white lace. The bridesmaids, flowergirls, 
and ring bearer made an attractive group, and the ushers were unusually handsome. 
After the singing of the Pal Song and the triumphant Mendelssohn's march,- the 
bride cut her cake and everyone enjoyed the wedding breakfast of ice cream and cake. 
— and this item from "Pepy's Diary" 

— "To a wedding the other day of a friend of mine, and quite overcome by the 
ushers, especially one as did wear his silk hat at a most fetching angle and whisk his 
little moustache at me. Do think his name was a double one, though I do not much 
care now since I saw him rolling his eyes around in his head at one of those brides- 
maids and do think him a silly frivolous young man." — 

A very delightful part of the festivities was the Stag Dinner held on the evening 
previous to the wedding day by the gentlemen of the bridal party in honor of the 
groom. Red carnations, some very attractive waitresses, the best of food and cigar- 
ettes and music, all did much to relieve the agony of high collars and newly dyed shoes, 
unnatural haircuts and stiff shirt fronts. 


Junior Tromenade 

May 3, 192.9 

Anticipated for three and a half years it was well worth waiting for. Every one 
seemed to cooperate in making it the very best ever. We even had an extra edition 
of the "News" come out at dinner to be sold by special newsboys and pert newsgirls. 

Our favors and place cards were waiting for us — and do you remember how many 
things you discovered you could wear with that cute blue purse and how thrilled you 
were when you saw that the "one and only" was actually using the black leather 
wallet the next time you saw him? Whether we had fish or roast chicken, there was a 
glamor over everything from the fruit cocktail to the demi tasse that made the dinner 
a perfect beginning for that heavenly evening. 

Our gowns and the music — Ruby Newman's — and the general atmosphere were 
enough to make us sure that this was a bit of paradise on earth; but when the 
lights dimmed and the seniors appeared in their gowns to sing to us from the balcony 
that last serenade with the echoes fading softly into the distance — then was the 
perfect moment. 

Some of us went home as soon as the dance was over at two o'clock; we had big 
plans for the next day. Some of us looked in at the other proms; some left for house 
parties; some went to the tea dance at the Refectory the next afternoon — whatever 
we did, wherever we went, we all cherish happy memories of a glorious week-end. 


Hobo Tarty 

October 8, 1930 

At the annual Senior house-warming, hoboes of every nation on earth and even a 
fair representation from Heaven and the other place turned out for the gala celebra- 
tion in the basement of South Hall. The setting amid the wash tubs and ironing boards 
and borrowed portable victrolas and bright crepe paper decorations and favors and 
noise makers was a striking conglomeration. 

The first prize went to Anstiss Bowser who modeled what the well-dressed wild 
man from the Figi Isles would be wearing in sack cloth and matted hair for the cur- 
rent season. Such a ferocious looking creature! And there were representatives from 
other far off lands as well as the plain freight-riding local species of bums — all united 
in a fraternal spirit and ready to have a good time. 

The peanut search and the one-legged race were fun, but the big event of the 
evening was the race to climb on a stool, eat a cracker, and whistle. This is a very 
difficult feat, and we wonder if the winner had any special formula obtained from 
her long years of Home Ec and Dietetics study to help overcome the awful dryness 
of the mouth. 

No hobo party would be complete without its "hand-out", and it was no time 
at all before the feast of popcorn and apples, doughnuts and cider disappeared. Luck 
was with us, and it was still early in the cider season; so for once we drank our fill — 
manners forgotten after the fashion of hoboes. 


Ye Christmas Thinner 

The Great Hall is. bright with Christmas cheer and the gleamof candlelight on the 
long dark tables. Outside the air is crisp and clear; within, all is warmth and jollity. 
Over the snow comes the sound of Christmas carols, and the Lord of the Manor bids 
the singers enter and partake of the feast. Down the Hall they come, candles held 
high, and the light falling on the red of their cloaks and on the bright gowns of the 
many guests about them. 

The Boar's head is seen at the doorway, borne aloft by the two small pages. The 
singers hail its appearance with an ancient carol. Then the guests begin to eat — and 
a real art they find it; for they have only a knife and a spoon. The jesters run through 
the Hall with much jingling of bells, adding to the mirth and the fun. Everywhere 
is joy and peace and the Christmas spirit. 

Then in comes the flaming Christmas pudding — best of all. And after that, the 
strolling players come; and we hear again the old, old tale of Saint George and the 

It is all such a delightful custom, and one which seems to belong so very specially 
to Simmons, that we consider it one of the happiest hours our Sundial records. 


Step Singing 

'When the starlit evening shadows, 

And the springtime days draw near, 
You can hear the classes singing 

Near the steps thev hold so dear. 
O the songs that we remember 

Are the songs that have been made 
Just for us to sing together 

At the vine-clad colonnade. 

When the riverway is changing 

With sunset colors bright. 
And the elmtrees' leaves a-quiver 

Peer down from lofty height, 
You can hear the classes singing, 

Near the steps they hold so dear, 
The songs that shall re-echo 

In our hearts from year to year."

Q k 

Sally Simmons 

"With malice toward none, with charity toward all", the Microcosm staff pub- 
lishes this information concerning Sally Simmons as it has been reported to them by 
her classmates. 

Sally is one of those unusual girls who possess the efficiency and the ability of the 
perfect (secretary, home economist, librarian, scientist, social service worker, public 
health nurse, landscape architect) along with the charm and grace of the perfect

stands by you till the end, always ready for fun, but very sympathetic and under- 
standing in your serious moods. 
(Choice of endings:) 

i . We know Sally will make a success of whatever she does in the future, but we 
feel sure she won't be a (secretary, home economist, librarian, scientist, social service 
worker, public health nurse, landscape architect) all her life. Here's to Sally! 

2.. (a.) Sally has made these four years of college very happy for the rest of us, and 
we only regret that the time has been so short. 

(b.) Sally didn't come to us until the beginning of our (Sophmore, Junior, Senior) 
year, but it wasn't long before she found a place in our hearts; and now we wonder 
how we ever got along without her. 

(a. and b.) We wish you great success in the future, Sally, and we know it is 
waiting for you!

Sally Simmons Joins the Debating Club 

Four years ago we appeared in Simmons College as a new class, the class of 1930, 
conceived in the freshness of youth and dedicated to the proposition that we could all 
graduate with A's. Now we are running the last great lap of the race, testing whether 
our class or any class so conceived and so dedicated can long endure without being 
disillusioned. We are meeting after our last marks are out; we have come to dedicate 
a sacred bonfire as the final resting place of those government notes we took in order 
that our grades might be higher. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should 
do this; but for deeper reasons we cannot so dedicate them, we cannot thus easily 
burn them, we cannot waste production so. Our fellow classmates — the flunked and 
unflunked who struggled here — have consecrated this course far above our poor power 
to add or detract. The underclasses will little note nor long remember what we are 
saying here; but if we leave them our government notes, they can never forget what 
we did here. It is for us who passed the course rather to pass on the tools of our pro- 
duction and dedicate them to the poor unfortunates who count government among 
the untouched tasks remaining before them. Then to these honored notes we bid them 
take increased devotion, to this course to which we gave our last full measure of 
devotion; and we here highly resolve that these notes shall not have been taken in 
vain; and that the class of 1931, under our advice, shall have a brighter future; and 
that this government of the United States, by Dr. Varrell, for our benefit shall not 
cause any more to perish in transit. 


In ^Memoriam 

I remember, I remember, 
The greenhouse and the cats, 

The little room inside where we 
Could leave our coats and hats. 

On mornings very early, 

Before the heat was up, 
We'd come to draw the digestive tract 

Of the dear little dogfish pup. 

The New Wing is a wondrous place, 

But that's another story; 
We still regret the passing 

Of the greenhouse in its glory. 


We ^commend 

Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" and Plutarch's "Lives" to the Class of 1931 for 
summer reading. These men did a lot of write-ups; but no two are alike. Here's 
hoping yours won't be. 

That 1934 cherish carefully the pictures that Mr. Neill takes of them on registration 
day, and that they save them to use in Mic when they are Seniors. 

That Simmons Athletic Association sponser crew practice on Muddy River for the 
three upper classes and on the puddle in the back yard for the freshmen. This sport 
should satisfy a number of "interest groups" — those really interested in boating and 
those who wish field work in life-saving. 

Competitive speeches by the faculty in Assembly — each speaker limited to three 
minutes, and three speakers scheduled for each day. The remaining time to be spent 
in consideration and deliberation of the relative merits of the speeches and in singing 
college songs. 

Closed cabinets opposite Room X17 in the main corridor beyond the bulletin board 
to replace the glass ones. These cabinets contain some very interesting exhibits from 
Dennison Company and points beyond and are so fascinating to the students that they 
block traffic along this corridor between classes and add to the work of the corridor 
committee. The cabinets, we suggest, should be locked all the time except during 
exam week, on Founder's Day and on Saturdays until 1 :oo. (Another suggestion has 
been made that this embryonic museum be placed in the new wing, in a room reserved 
for this purpose and be only open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 :oo 
until 4:00 at fifty cents admission and on Sundays open free to the public from 1:00 
until 4:00. All money made should go, we feel, to Press Board for the purpose of 
buying them a new blackboard.) 

That a study be made by the advanced science students as to which are more grace- 
ful, the commuters or the dorm girls. The editors feel that the advantage lies with 
the girls who give such a large portion of their time to exercise on streets cars and 
busses, on trolleys and on trains, and who spend so many waking hours in an agony of 
timetables and waiting rooms. 

That the Congressional Record be placed on the Summer Reading List. 


We Suppose That Long After 
We heave Simmons 

The freshmen will worry about the arithmetic exam. 

Some people will do their summer reading before the middle of September. 

There'll be standing room only at the class basketball games. 

The lunchroom will still be a seething mass of hungry girls who push and fight and 
struggle in line and shout and holler all the time they are eating lunch. 

Someone will say "Sh" if you open your mouth in the corridor during exams. 

There will still be people who insist upon racing the speaker out of Assembly. 

People will still keep reserved books out of the library after nine o'clock in the 

Girls will manage to live through two whole years and part of a third just in antici- 
pation of Prom. 

The college will somehow exist. 

oA Few Things That We Have Learned 

*At College 

How John Simmons happened to found a college. 

And how he did it. 

Why he did it. 

"It is not a question of whether a thing 'will do' or not; it is a question of whether 

it is your best work." 
What's wrong with the Simmons College Lunchroom. 
How to be quiet in the corridors during exams. 
How to model with plasticene. 
The percentage composition of milk. 

The number of stairs from the main building up to the first floor of the west wing. 
How interested the whole college is in the interclass basketball and hockey games. 
How to play "Fruit Basket." 
To use the stairs on either side of Information to go up and the stairs on the other 

side to come down. 
How to reach the bulletin board between classes. 
What a blue card means. 
How many cuts the Seniors are allowed. 
There is no such thing as "spring fever." 

"You understand? Do I make it clear? Do you see? Can you understand it?" 
Take this slowly; accuracy counts for more than speed. 
Endurance is a virtue, especially in lab or tabulations.
